Emily Blunt says Tom Cruise’s vulgar advice didn’t offend her: ‘It’s ludicrous’
Emily Blunt clarified that she was not “offended” by Tom Cruise’s vulgar advice given on the set of “Edge of Tomorrow.”
The 39-year-old actress called the reaction to Cruise telling her to “stop being such a p—-” was “ludicrous.”
“It’s ludicrous that it’s being spun as something that offended me,” Blunt told E! News in a statement. “It didn’t. I shared the story as lightheartedly as it was meant by Tom.”
Blunt continued by emphasizing how close of friends the “Top Gun: Maverick” actor is to her.

Emily Blunt made it clear that she was not “offended” by Tom Cruise’s crude advise provided on the “Edge of Tomorrow” set.
She declared, “I admire Tom, he’s a good buddy, and he was a complete jewel to me. “It was intended as a joke, and it successfully made me laugh out loud. And to this day, we still find it amusing.”
Blunt’s most well-known roles before joining Cruise in “Edge of Tomorrow” were in “The Devil Wears Prada” and “The Five-Year Engagement.”
“It was my first time engaging in action, and as Tom somewhat ominously stated when we initially got going, “This is the deep end of action for me.” In a “Smartless” episode, she recalls thinking, “If you’re saying that, then we are in trouble.” “podcast
“We had to wear these really enormous robotic suits, which I think it would have been great if they could have CGI’ed them, but we wanted to do it practically and in a tactile way,” she said.
“When you hear the word tactile, you’re like, that sounds nice and cozy. There was nothing cozy about wearing these suits.”
Wearing the suit led Blunt to feel “a bit panicky” and she began to cry on set.
“He just stared at me and was like, ‘I know, I know,’ and I was like, ‘I’m not sure how I’m going to get through this shoot,’ and I started to cry,” she said. “I was like, ‘I’m just feeling a bit panicky about the whole shoot.'”
“He literally goes, he stared at me for a long time not knowing what to do, and he goes, ‘Come on, stop being such a p—-, OK?’”
Blunt added, “And I did laugh, and then we got through it.”
